Baudrillard dies March 6 2007

"THE French critic Jean Baudrillard, whose theories about consumer culture and the manufactured nature of reality were intensely discussed in philosophical circles and in blockbuster movies such as The Matrix, has died aged 77."
His thinking influenced my work in film; the way he made sense of this era of media saturation - what happens to reality - this 'hyperreal', which he speaks of, where the image is all we have. His death followed a long illness.
